Out of the Bubble and Into the ... Euphrates?

Isn't it nice that Iraq is a sovereign, free nation--now...?

Helena Cobban notes:

AP's Terence Hunt writes that Bush's ostensible "host" there in the Baghdad Green Zone, PM Nuri al-Maliki, was given all of five minutes warning about the "guest" who, unbeknownst to him, had already flown into his country and was now anxious to meet him in the Republican Palace.

So much for Iraq's sovereignty".

I'm glad to see Bush getting out of his bubble and meeting people--in other people's houses! On the other hand, with Bush listening in on what's going on in my bedroom via the NSA, he might as well be living with me too...
